    1. A microfiber duster to banish all those dust bunnies loitering in your home, rent-free.

    Promising review: "This is a great little duster. Collects dust like a magnet and it's so easy to wash." β€”Nicholas Driscoll

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    2. A disposable toilet cleaning wand that works so well it will feel like you're a cleaning wizard wielding a real wand.


    Promising review: "So, we have a toilet that belongs to the cats. We don't use it, we don't look at it, we like to pretend it doesn't exist. Even with semi-regular flushing, cat waste is pretty nasty stuff and built up quickly in the bowl. One of these wands cleaned it up in a single session!" β€”Whitney

    Get six refills from Amazon for $8.99.

    3. A helpful squeegee you can hang in your bathroom, so you can easily wipe away excess moisture after each shower.


    Promising review: "This squeegee works perfectly in our shower to clean our glass doors, as well as the shower walls themselves. The edge is nice and firm so it cleans on the first swipe. The handle is very comfortable too. This is probably the best shower squeegee we have ever bought and it seems like it will last a long while. We also like that we can hang it on the top of the shower spray pipe, to keep it out of the way." β€”Diane MC

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    4. A (social) lifesaving cleaning solution to remove pet stains and odors so you can finally have guests over again.


    Promising review: "We have two pups of our own and run doggy day care in our home. During the week sometimes we have up to seven dogs in the house at once (most of them puppies). As you can imagine, we have a lot of accidents. One day, a puppy hopped on our bed and peed but it was too late to do laundry in our building. Thankfully I had recently purchased this Woolite Advanced Pet Stain Remover + Sanitizer to clean the dog bed occasionally. I removed the sheet from the bed, sprayed the Woolite on the stain as directed and blotted it out. After three rounds and about five minutes, I couldn't see or smell the pee anymore. It dried pretty quickly and we put new sheets on the bed. It saved us! As I said, I also use this to clean the dog bed and on our couch whenever there are any accidents. It has a pleasant odor and really removes urine and vomit smells! Really, a great product for pet owners!" β€”Dayna McKenzie

    Get it from Amazon for $4.46.

    5. Packs of garbage disposer cleaner that foam up and leave your sink smelling lemony fresh., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this disposer cleaner; it works so well. This is my first time using it and I'm very pleased. It really cleans my disposer and leaves it with a very pleasant and clean smell. It does what it promises: It cleans and degreases very well. I definitely will be ordering a few more. It's also very affordable." β€”Lakiky18

    Get four from Amazon for $6.29.

    6. A set of brushes to get into those hard-to-reach places like windowsills.


    Promising review: "I used these to clean my window tracks and they worked great. The long fibers get down to the bottom of the track. The end of the brush fits into the deep track to remove dirt and debris. It was easy to push everything up and out to easily be vacuumed away. I followed up with a wet rag and my window tracks are now clean. These are great. I highly recommend them." β€”C. DeWitte

    Get two from Amazon for $4.99 (available in three colors).

    7. A three-pack of silicone scrubbers that last longer than regular sponges and smell just peachy., Amazon

    Promising review: "I like the Peachy Clean scrubber very much β€” so much that I reordered another 3-pack. They remain fresh through several weeks of heavy daily use without getting a sour, unpleasant smell. I would give them a strong 4 1/2 stars with just a slight deduction because they are not quite as good at removing stuck-on food as the previous yellow sponge covered with nylon mesh that I've used in the past. I don't mind having to use a little more elbow grease occasionally in exchange for a scrubber that stays clean and fresh-smelling longer." β€”Ruth M.

    Get three from Amazon for $9.95.

    8. A pack of screen cleaning tools to help you bring your phone and tablet back to their former glory.


    Promising review: "This definitely does a great job of cleaning and polishing my various screens. The bottle is pretty big; I think it would take over a year to go through the whole thing, even if I used it multiple times per week. The anti-fingerprint 'coating' that it leaves behind does a fairly good job of resisting some prints for at least a little while. The two microfiber cloths are good quality and I wouldn't be surprised if they survived a number of trips through the washing machine. They are thick and sturdy feeling." β€”Y M

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. A bottle of Goo Gone you can count on to cut through sticky residue, like for example, a dollar store price sticker on something you're giving as a gift., Amazon

    Promising review: "Easily removes sticker residue. The only thing I would recommend is don't remove the silver foil at the mouth of the bottle: Instead, pierce the foil with a pin and then use it as a squirt bottle. It will be much easier to manage the flow of the liquid, as you only need a very small amount." β€”Joe90

    Get it from Amazon for $7.36.

    10. A long bristle brush that will help you reach the very bottom of even the slimmest bottles.


    Promising review: "Works great! It's perfect for cleaning my Perky Hummingbird Feeder. I'm able to clean the bottom, sides, and top with this brush." β€”Penname

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (comes with a straw brush).

    11. An Angry Mama you can use to steam up your microwave, making it easier to wipe away crusted marinara grime.

    Promising review: "I love this! As with any product, if you have a lot of buildup in your microwave, it's going to take a little elbow grease. When I used her, everything wiped down super easily. There's a strong vinegar smell so do use the lemon juice if you aren't a fan of vinegar. For this price, she's cute and kicked butt. Great gift idea, too!" β€”C.B.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.44.

    12. A furniture polish and cleaner to wipe away years of neglect from all your family's passed-down furniture.


    Promising review: "If you've ever looked on the top of your kitchen cabinets to find the caked-on grease and grime, and after a few sad attempts to wipe it clean with all the elbow grease you could muster decided that pretending to be blissfully unaware was a better option, don't give up just yet. This furniture polish is a miracle! It works! Seriously, it took minimal elbow grease and a few damp cloths. What I thought would take multiple days and a razor blade to remove was done in 45 minutes! I was so excited about how well it worked, I sent my mom my own infomercial." β€”Sara

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49.

    13. This helpful dishwashing fish that works just like a Scrub Daddy but with an aquatic shape.


    Promising review: "I'm really pleased with DishFish. It's easy to scrub with and doesn't scratch the dishes. I like the ability to stand it up and let it drain quickly. It doesn't stay damp or greasy after use, making it nice and clean for the next use. On top of the good functionality, it has a fun shape. The kids love it (it has even helped them clean up if you can believe it!) and they've already named the fish that came in the three-pack. Seems like something good to always have on handβ€”I'm very pleased!" β€”Doug Porter

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    14. A blade brush you can use to clean cutlery without risking injury.


    Promising review: "I love everything about this product. It fits perfectly in my hand and the hard plastic protects me from getting cut. The firm bristles do a great job cleaning the blades of your knifes. I have saved many of sponges using this great product." β€”Craft

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A wood floor cleaner sure to entice you into recreating the iconic scene from Risky Business.


    Promising review: "Instantly, this product removed the dull sheen on our floor and I was able to remove chunks of adhesive with a little elbow grease. One thing that I will say is that a little goes a long way, and the product is definitely more effective when used exactly as the directions state. The difference this made in our floors can be seen in the photos below, where I had cleaned around a rug and then removed the rug later. The next picture then reveals how the aisle looked after the entire floor was cleaned. This area wasn't nearly as bad as the high traffic areas, but the difference is still notable!" β€”no name

    16. A pack of Magic Eraser-dupes that work just as well as the real deal at zapping away smudges and stains.

    Promising review: "Obsessed. You start by scrubbing that one scuff that's been bugging you every time you walk by since the day it mysteriously appeared... then you see a small one next to it. Then hours have passed and you're holding this shriveled up fluff and your house is spotless and you realize you can't live without these things." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of 20 from Amazon for $8.95 (or get the originals).

    17. A tiny brush set for helping you do a deep clean in those nooks and crannies.


    Promising review: "A big step-up from toothbrushes, which I have used for many years prior to buying these. Key improvements over toothbrushes: angled handles that get your hands up and out of the way, bigger and grippier handles than a toothbrush, a larger brush with stiff bristles (which are great for heavy scrubbing without scratching), a smaller brush with tapered softer bristles on one end (good for cleaning in tight areas), and a rubber nub which surprisingly good for cleaning in tight areas. I replaced the four toothbrushes in my cleaning kit with these." β€”fjb

    Get two from Amazon for $5.99 (available in two colors).

    18. A flexible drain cleaner with tiny fibers that pull up all that gross gunk and hair.


    Promising review: "Looks cheap (is cheap) but is effective. I had a few inches of standing water in my tub for two days when I got this thing. Cleared it in moments, I did not save it because it was difficult to clean off and inexpensive enough that I'd just as soon buy another when the need arises. It's very nice to have a viable, non-chemical means of clearing hair clogs. (More reliably effective too.) Don't waste money on chemicals β€” this and three minutes of effort and you're done. Do wear gloves, and keep a plastic bag handy for pulling the hair off the gizmo." β€”pissedfemale

    Get it from Amazon for $5.28.

    19. A four-way leather brush that costs a lot less than a new pair of boots.

    Promising review: "I was really sad when I thought my bucks were at the end of their road because I had always heard that suede couldn't be cleaned. With this brush and a little elbow grease my bucks are looking great again! Not out of the box new, but I'd say 85 percent which is fine by me. I didn't use any water or cleaner, I just kept wiping the brush off on my jeans to keep the brush clean, then hit the shoe again with a clean surface. Even brightened the leather up a bit." β€”Roberto

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    20. A bottle of Barkeeper's Friend soft cleanser β€” an intense solution that can take down stains that ordinary soap can't handle.,

    It works on everything from cooked-on burn stains on your stainless steel pots and pans, to buildup around gas stove burners, to soap scum and other mystery dirt in bathtubs.

    Promising review: "Sink was near unclean-able. Ajax, bleach etc. would not take out the stains you see in the photo. [Ed. note: That's the photo above!] We considered replacing the sink but wanted to google how to repair sinks and stumbled on a YouTube review for this product. The change is unbelievable. The left is AFTER an hour scrubbing with Ajax. The right is 30 minutes with Bar Keepers." β€”Eze

    21. A can of fume-free oven cleaner to obliterate the years of grime and caked on food you've been neglecting. All you need to do is spray, wait at least 40 minutes, and then return to easily wipe away the mess.

    Promising review: "Simply UNBELIEVABLE. Fume-free and no gloves needed, but dissolves ANYTHING cooked on! Had not cleaned my oven EVER. Simply sprayed on, left overnight, and wiped off with paper towels. Do not have to dread cleaning oven ever again! Can use for everyday spot cleaning with only have to let sit for couple hours for minor things. Used on broiler pan that would not scrub clean with even steel wool, no need to scrub now! Crockpot leaked over bowl and burned on inside heating chamber; just sprayed and wiped off in the morning. Plan on using to clean grill in spring and am sure it will make it a breeze." β€”Andrew J.

    Get it on Amazon for $5.97.

    22. A jewelry cleaning pen you can count on to add new shine to your gems, no costly trip to the jeweler needed.

    Just twist the stick to get some cleansing solution on the bristles. The formula will keep your gems shiny and new.

    Promising review: "If I could give this 10 stars I would!!! I'm a little of a fanatic when it comes to keeping my jewelry clean, especially my wedding set. I tried this product on my diamonds, Swarovski crystals, and Brighton jewelry and the results are nothing less than amazing!!! This restored one of my Swarovski rings that I have not worn in years due to the cloudy color to a sparkling brilliance just like the first day I bought it!! I cannot recommend this product enough!!! I just ordered additional wands so I don't run out!!! Home run Amazon!" β€”Kristina B.
